Neeta Lulla makes a debut at Lakme Fashion show…..
Neeta Lulla, created a collection that carried a strong message. She presented a fashionable ode titled 'Woman' dedicated to the girl child. She kept her glamour quotient in tact as she took the audience through the various stages in a woman's life (from young to a glamorous lady of the future) with her creative all-western garment line; in a color spectrum of solid and prints that wove in every hue, in soft fluid feminine fabrics to match the theme of her collection. Her finale model choice was very apt – former Miss Universe 1994 Sushmita Sen with her daughter Renee who put a perfect end to a show which not only had everything that revolves around fashion and style, but also a message that will make a social impact.
Pria Katari Puri's inspirations came up with a glittering collection of bridal wear which had all the style, beauty and elegance which a girl dreams of for her wedding trousseau. The prints reflected the beauty of the old Topkai Sarayi Palace and the Turkish motifs from the Art Deco period. Pria's fashionable journey went through fabrics that were rich and fluid – silk, chiffon, satin, tulle as well as lush velvet and lasered lace in metallic tones. Colors matched the glory and grandeur of the theme with white, orange, gold and rich metallic tones of copper, bronze and antique silver which were embellished further with sequins, crystal and dazzling silver jewels. Detailing was restricted to tassels, fringes, silk thread and crystals.
This was probably the best collection presented by the designing duo of Dev R Nil. With a patriotic theme—60 years of India's independence when the country is poised to move into a different level—the designers who titled their presentation ‘Sixty’ had a fabulous line of dresses, blouses, jackets, tops and beautiful saris all blended into a perfectly cohesive look in fabrics like taffeta, georgette, stain and jersey. Here was a line of garments that Dev R Nil can proudly present on any ramp; The Indian and the international.
The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),
.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” .....as it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.
